(Correction: George Zimmerman has been identified in media reports as white and Hispanic; he did not self-identify that way.)
NORWALK, Conn. – A march to protest George Zimmerman’s not guilty verdict in the death of Trayvon Martin is planned for Sunday, July 21.
The event is being organized by the Rev. Nellie Mann and others.
According to a press release, the march is being billed as a peaceful march to protest the verdict and a call to action. Zimmerman, who has been identified in media reports as white and Hispanic, was found not guilty in Martin’s death in Sanford, Fla., despite admitting he shot the African-American 17-year-old during a scuffle. The verdict has spawned nationwide protests, most of them peaceful.
The march will begin at 2 p.m. at the Calvary Baptist Church Parking lot, 21 Concord St., and end at the Norwalk Police Department on the corner of Monroe and South Main.
